Before some exploring in a still very wild 2018 Adventureland, Disneyland Paris, I make it to this Disney quick service restaurant before it's imagineered to something else, listen to some tunes from "The Jungle Book" and eat pizza!

Step or tap dance into the most stylish theatre district in the world as I wait at the stage door of the Theatre Royal Drury Lane hoping to meet Bonnie Langford, the star of “42nd Street”! And why not stay and listen to my thoughts over coffee after this West End musical show too!

On her 20th anniversary, Mulan still draws a dawn crowd in London, even though I’m not totally convinced why, at first… But inside the Disney Store on Oxford Street, the 17-inch limited edition doll wins hearts with her ceremonial wrapped sword and dragon medallion necklace. And what I see is not exactly what I expect!

My review of staying in a Standard Room begins with a continental breakfast buffet at La Cantina! Below are my tips from the vlog:
* best tip was to book when I reserved my stay
* elsewhere there was a Starbucks Coffee for breakfast in this hotel too
* advised that nearest laundry room with dryers was walking distance at the Hotel Cheyenne
* found hotel Wi-Fi easy – needed my English-French electric adaptor
* re: room temperature, spoke with / overheard 2 different Americans complaining about air-conditioning
* needing it cool, even with 60-degree weather by night I found the fan + open window... perfect for sleeping
* blackout curtains
* mini-fridges were only in Family Rooms

An up-close view of almost every rare Disney character imaginable at the Inaugural Party Farewell Parade in Walt Disney Studios at Disneyland Paris. Even the most elusive of heroes and villains, like Li Shang and Shan Yu, Robin Hood and Prince John, Hercules and Hades plus Brer Rabbit and Brer Fox jostled each other along the parade route. #DFDInauguralParty! #DisneyFanDaze

Is it inhumane for so many people to chase one chipmunk? Clarisse doesn’t seem to mind. And if Disney villain Yzma’s anti-aging routine is so bad, how can she still make these dance moves?! I make some new friends, despite some old ones appearing to dodge us as the Paris sun sets on the first ever Disney FanDaze Party in Walt Disney Studios park, Disneyland Paris. #DFDInauguralParty! #DisneyFanDaze

Early in extra magic time, take a peaceful walkthrough up inside Sleeping Beauty castle at Disneyland Paris with me. 1959 animated movie themed stained glass, tapestries and lots of surprises are sprinkled around Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant, and the castle interior is all enveloped in the soundtrack from "Sleeping Beauty". #DisneyCastle #DisneylandParis

I wanted to give you the strangest feeling in my vlog that you've taken a ride on "Peter Pan's Flight," even if it was a long time ago or when you were very young or perhaps even if you never, never have yet, until you take a trip to Disneyland Paris, that is!

Yes, Captain Barbosa, duelling pirates, the new auction scene, Davey Jones and more all lived up to my inner hype! The re-imagined Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland Paris is truly a 21st century dark ride, with a 1967 or is it 1867 atmosphere. And of course I meandered to capture all those eerie lanterns and queue cobweb details before boarding.
